Motherboard is fried. Some data may be salvaged, we'll see.
Went to Best Buy to buy a new laptop. Must have XP for work software, Vista doesn't work. Left in tears after two hours, near a nervous breakdown.
Stopped at the Apple store, bought a Mac. Pray for me.
When new computer is up and running and am not blogging from blackberry, will be able to post with pronouns again : )
